There are now 60 tower cranes looming over Chicago — nearly double the number from 2016. The city has seen an increase in development for the last three years, with Mayor Rahm Emanuel touting it as evidence of the economic opportunities in Chicago. The latest addition in construction hardware comes courtesy of Belgravia Group, which is building an 18-story luxury condominium tower called Renelle on the River, which is 50 percent pre-sold. [Bisnow]
